STATUSBAR(8)                                         STATUSBAR(8)

     NAME
          statusbar - display a bar graph status window

     SYNOPSIS
          aux/statusbar [ -kt ] [ -w minx,miny,maxx,maxy ] title

     DESCRIPTION
          Aux/statusbar reads textual status lines from standard
          input, converting them into a continuously updated bar graph
          displayed in a new window on the screen.  The title is dis-
          played on a line above the bar graph.  Each input line is
          two space-separated decimal numbers: the numerator and
          denominator of a fraction.

          Statusbar exits when it reaches end-of-file on standard
          input.  Typing DEL or control-C will also cause it to exit.

          The options are:

          -k   do not allow typing to cause statusbar to exit

          -t   print an ASCII status bar to standard output, using
               backspace to redraw it

          -w   set the coordinates of the statusbar window created

     EXAMPLE
          The -v option to hget(1) causes it to print status lines
          suitable for input to statusbar.
